BEN Wilson is chomping at the bit ahead of the new British Supersport Championship campaign after completing his pre-season testing.

The Kirton ace has put in the hard yards at Brands Hatch, Snetterton and Calafat (Spain), pushing the new Kawasaki ZX6R to the limit.

The new season kicks off at Brands Hatch over the Easter weekend of April 6-9, with last season’s runner-up Wilson looking to go one better this time around.

He said: “Although we have a brand new bike this year it is the same model I have been riding over the past four years, so we knew what to expect of it. Really all four days were just shakedown tests to re-familiarise myself with the bike and get up to speed after the winter break.

“The bike ran very well and I was able to record some really fast lap times and I feel confident I can be competitive and mount a challenge for the title.”
